Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) now says the voter register will be published on June 20.
In a press release by IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati, the extension follows a decision to engage KPMG in the audit process.
Earlier IEBC had settled on June 9th, 2022 for the publication of the register after a 30 day verification period.
